“Good food and service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 18, 2013

Very good family restaurant. We had to wait about 15 minutes which in a restaurant is a good thing. Place was packed. We had the spaghetti and meatballs - delicious. Good service. My beer was so good and cold I ordered a second - unusual for me. Enjoy.

“Soup and sangria”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 4, 2013

Their bowl of soup is plenty for one for dinner. We love the sausage and lentil when they have it. Pair with a quartino of wine or sangria and it's a pretty inexpensive night out! Wednesday night happy hour offers a $5 glass of sangria or a quartino of wine for the price of a glass.

“Enjoyable local Italian restaurant”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 14, 2013

We are regulars at this nearby restaurant. The service is excellent, the food very good, and the ambience very nice. The TV's are at the bar end and do not infringe on the main dining area. The regular menu is a bit tired. The seasonal specials spice it up a bit, but there are items on the menu that have been there for several years now.

“Average Italian”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 5, 2013

Four of us dined here recently for girls night out. We were promptly seated in a booth that seemed a bit small for four average-sized people. Someone stopped at the table and asked if any of us drank wine, without introducing himself - we weren't sure who he was. We were a bit confused by the question, but then he stated they had wine flights that evening - red, white, and sangria. Entrees come with your choice of soup or salad, and I ordered the minestrone. I was disappointed with the soup - it was "weak" and seemed more like cabbage soup. Next time I'll have the salad. I had the Pasta Sostanza as my entree, and it was very good.

This was a good place for girls night out, however a table may suit us better next time. Staff saw that we were chatting and did not rush us.
